TEACHING EXPERIENCE

After my little boy was diagnosed with autism at age 2 1/2, I have spent the last nearly-4 years immersing myself in all the various teaching methodologies available. Most of my time over the last few years has been devoted to learning more about autism teaching strategies and I've attended many a speech and OT therapy session in order to learn how to teach my little boy and manage his sensory profile. I have also trained in ABA through Rethink Autism, which helped me teach my little boy the basics in the early days, like imitation, matching and following simple instructions. After trying various schools in Johannesburg, I decided to start my own. My son now has his own teacher (I find that kids work hard for anyone but mommy!) and I run the school which includes making all the teaching material.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Bribery and corruption! My boy responds very well to rewards-based teaching - via sweeties and being told how wonderful he is. In South Africa, our version of ABA is very casual, in that we don't expect kids to sit at a desk for hours on end. We apply the principle wherever the child is most comfortable - on the floor, outside, dangling from a tree - anywhere! We also try to create an environment where there is constant praise and and lessons are set up to support the child being successful.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

My background is in IT, where I was a software developer. This has been the most useful tool in starting up businesses and lately, opening my school, as I can solve all technical issues myself. My background in IT has also enabled me to teach myself how to use Graphics editing software to make my own teaching materials.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

All of my products have been created for use in my home school, as per the teacher's request OR designed on request for speech & occupational therapists and autism intervention specialists.
